Video: Shma Yisrael

Legend tells that after the Holocaust, R. Yosef Kahaneman zt'l , the Ponevezhe Rov began looking for Jewish children who had survived the war. It was known that some of the children had ended up in churches and were being raised as Christians. The Rov encountered one church that denied the existence and presence of Jewish children within their midst... He was granted permission to enter the children's quarters to inspect for himself -- when he entered he began calling out "Shema Yisroel" and instinctively many of the children raised their hands to cover their eyes and started calling out "mama! mama!"

This is a beautiful video.

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: NY Nana).

There are streets all over Israel named after Rabbi Kahaneman.

Thanks for the hat tip, Carl,

I had to try 2 or 3 times to get through the video.

I was not familiar R. Yosef Kahaneman zt'l, and this was indeed beautiful.

What continues to concern me is that as the years go by, the Shoah will fade into history, and we already see the Shoah compared to any other event. No, it was not, and is not comparable to anything else. May we never see another one.
